The 2018 Annual Newsletter is now available and can be downloaded directly here. The newsletter shares highlights for last year and includes some of the things we are planning for 2019. In addition, we are planning significant upgrades to our fog signal building and you can participate with a contribution. Donations forms are included in the newsletter or you can donate directly on line here.
The Society’s work plan for this summer is well underway. Please read the attached to see what we’re doing now and our plan to finish all of our capital restoration projects by summer 2019.
You’ll notice from shore that we are in the process of stripping and repainting the crib base and upper decks of the lighthouse building, with the tower the final capital project next summer.
At the marina you’ll see our new gift shop trailer which is already way ahead of previous years sales thanks to a bright open space that is much larger than we had before.
The Fog Signal building’s interior is being finished and exhibits are in the planning stages for a museum quality experience when we open next summer.
For more info visit the Capital Plan page. Please read the Case Statement which includes a mail in donation form. If you have any questions feel free to use the contact form here. We appreciate your help in previous years and hope you will join us in funding these great projects!

It’s been a great year for our lighthouse. Read all about it in our 2017 annual newsletter. It’s available for direct download here.
2017 was a very special year as our dedicated volunteers rebuilt the fog signal building. We hosted nearly 500 visitors as our attendance continues to increase year over year. We can now turn our attention to finishing the interior and program the space with Harbor Beach and Great Lakes maritime heritage exhibits to enhance the tour experience. Your support is needed to continue our efforts. A donation form is included in the newsletter or it can be downloaded directly here. For your convenience, the donations can be made completely online here. If your gift is $50 or more please provide your name or someone you would like to honor and that will appear on a donor list that will be installed in the building. The Society is a 501 c 3 and thus your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Thank you for your support. See you next year. Our tours will be Saturdays – June 23 through September 29. We’ll send out an announcement when tickets can be purchased. Sign up for our online newsletters to get these announcements. Simply fill out your email on the form to the left.
